Do you wear the right gloves in the lab?

19 December 2018

Working in a laboratory is different from working in an office. Working in a laboratory requires an attitude of conscious and responsible behaviour. After all, we work with various hazardous substances that can potentially pose a danger to the health and safety of yourself and your colleagues.

To reduce the chance of being exposed to chemicals, you need to use gloves. Be aware, however, that not every type of glove protects your skin sufficiently. That is why it is important that you know, before you start your research, which type of glove offers your hand(s) sufficient protection. Check the MSDS (chapter 8) or check the Ansell or Shieldskin glove guide before you start working and see if the gloves are appropriate for your work.
